In the Body-Mind Centering® Challenge we move, breathe, rest, explore, dance. We explore the structures of the body and their possibilities for movement. Through anatomical ideas, movement, perception and touch we place our awareness on different body systems.
We will explore embryological development. We will meet pathways that different body tissues like bones, fascia, connective tissue and organs took, how they found their places to grow and develop into a functional multilayered full-body being! Understanding from where they come from and what they are now. It is a story of creating space and matter, of differentiation and integration. A journey of migrating, folding, unfolding, spiraling, touching and meeting – aspects that are still inherent in our bodies and in our lives! Underneath lies the ongoing condensing and expanding of the cells breathing.
We will explore the journey of developmental movements – how we grew from a one-celled animal to a walking human. Different developmental movement patterns give support and ease to our movement and being today. A continuous interrelationship of core and periphery. Support from a soft, fluid spine and a trust of gravity and space allows movement to become full and present. With the finest awareness we evoke presence and three-dimensional full-body pleasure for joyous movement!
